The days are finally getting warmer in New Jersey, and the sun is staying out longer. You know what that means: Summer Camp is right around the corner! We are getting prepared here for a great summer camp season at Camp Riverbend in Somerset County. Here are some fun things to do to get you in camp mode!
Channel your excitement in to a camp themed movie night. Try these classic camp films:
- Heavy Weights
- The Parent Trap
- Camp Nowhere
Also, try making your favorite camp snacks at home (to watch during your movies, or even after school!) Cook up some of these tasty treats:
- Chocolate covered strawberries
- Salted watermelon kabobs
- Strawberry banana smoothies
- Home made ice pops
- Peanut butter and sunflower (or raisin) dipped pretzel sticks
Then, make some items that you can take with you to camp this summer! Creating crafts that are summer time ready will help to get you really thinking about the summer ahead. Try some of these easy crafts:
- Tie Dying
- Create your own stationery
- Camp blankets/ pillows (Here’s a link to DIY fleece blankets)
- Lanyard bracelets/ key chains
- Make your own bouncy ball (Here’s a link to DIY Bouncy Ball)
Once you’ve done all these fun things, you’ll be even more excited for camp! Now all that’s left is to do is wait for summer to arrive! So begin the preparation and the counting down, because we’re in the home stretch! Happy counting!
If you’re thinking, “Yeah, but it’s just not the same…”, then why not come down to Saturday Club (for Preschool – Kindergarten aged children) or our Open House (for children ages 3-14) this weekend to get the summer camp experience a season early!!
